If you want to use limestone, remember it is a porous stone and must be sealed upon installation and then twice a year. Limestone is a natural stone and offers an Old World look to it, however, if the maintenance for it is not something you want to undertake, I would suggest finding another flooring material for your kitchen.
Choosing tiles: Choosing which type of floor tile to use and which tiles is appropriate for your kitchen is the first step. There is actually a wide variation of designs and textures to choose from which can be overwhelming for some. Stick with a tile type and texture that will require less maintenance and is durable enough to handle falling pans and plates. Go for the ones that would be easy to clean up. Get a design and color that goes with the design of your window shutters, curtains and other accessories inside your kitchen.
Until recently unless you were lucky enough to have a hardwood floor; the variety of materials available for kitchen flooring was restricted to just a few options - vinyl, laminate or waterproof carpet tiles. The possibility of using stone flooring was generally restricted to those with large budgets.
The kitchen floor is still one of most utilized areas of any home. This is where homeowners choose to store their food, dining utensils, kitchen gadgets and the like. Some may even choose to entertain guests in the kitchen. With the variety of uses, your kitchen flooring must be both durable yet must be visually impressive. Here are a few kitchen flooring options you can choose from to fit your needs and preferences.
Stone or tile works very well in heavy traffic areas of the home, such as the kitchen. One of the most durable tiles is ceramic, which comes in various colors and styles. Ceramic tiles also have lots of options that can be sued for decorative designs and/or borders.
Wood: Comes either as solid wood flooring or engineered planks. A good quality wooden floor can last for many years if it is looked after properly. Like stone however, a wooden floor requires a lot of maintenance - it is more difficult to keep clean than laminate or vinyl. Wood is highly susceptible to water damage and staining so it is important to regularly seal the floor. One of the great advantages to this type of floor is the variety of wood types and hues which are available. Additionally wood can also be painted or stained to produce greater colour and style options.
